Fleur de Passion is the jewel in the range from the house of Diebolt-Vallois. Fermented and aged in barrels, it is only made in the very best years. Complex but delicate. sumptuous and dense on the palate. 2006 Fleur de Passion will become a legend. This is supreme Champagne with purity, oak aroma and power. The elegance in this wine is hardly beaten. Perhaps the most exciting wine in Champagne today.
